We’ve finally reached the deca-sode, and oh how great it is.
This week it’s a heavy-hitter as we tackle the Wolf, one of the more badass animals out there. I mean if Liam Neeson fights it in a movie then you know you’re dealing with something serious. He only fights nazis, kidnappers, Batmen, and wolves. Dude doesn’t f*** around. What was I talking about though? Reviewing wolves, yes. Are they awesome enough to dethrone the Killer Whale as the best animal so far, or will they fail like so many other before them? There’s only one way to find out, friendo.
(0:00 – 6:07) Intro – This is your basic intro stuff. Nothing too crazy. Nothing too sane. Like a perfect bowl of porridge it’s just right.
(6:15 – 12:41) The Ranking System – An overview of the Ranking System for newbies, and a refresher for anyone who needs it.
(12:43 – 50:58) The Review – The unsorted facts begin here, and as always that’s the start of our review. Lean back in your office chair, look busy for the boss, and enjoy learning about the Wolf.
(51:01 – 1:03:02) The Ranking – Now it’s time to see where the Wolf falls on a scale of one to ten! But only because this is the tenth animal we’ve ranked… We’ll also find out where the Wolf falls on a scale of four to one hundred though! Just like we do with every animal! Is the Wolf a winner? Listen here to settle the score.
